The Journey of a Refugee: Amira's Story
See the world through the eyes of Amira, a 16 year old refugee from Syria.
Over 50 million people worldwide are currently fleeing from their homes - more than at any other time since World War Two. Nearly 17 million of these have been forced to travel to a different country.
Amira is one of these 17 million refugees. This session is a chance to hear Amira's story in her own words and make it personal.
